BSC INTERACTIVE SYSTEMS AND VIDEO GAMES DESIGN: A multi-million dollar industry - video games are a serious business. The video games industry worldwide is now bigger than the film industry, and is particularly strong in Britain.
The computing power needed to support the interactivity and the multimedia requirements of today's games is driving the development of ever faster and more powerful hardware and software. Consequently this course will introduce students to the most advanced computing techniques on any of the Creative Technology courses at the University of Bradford.
The course examines the theory and practice of game play as well as user interface design, computer animation and graphics programming. ISVGD emphasises the development of theoretical as well as highly practical skills.
As an ISVGD student, you will study the history of games, strategy and artificial intelligence, from traditional games such as chess through to the most sophisticated multimedia games. What makes a game intriguing and satisfying to play? Sometimes the best games are actually the simplest.
ISVGD students also learn how to design and develop complex interactive multimedia software. In the final year of the course you will put these skills into practice, working individually and collaboratively on production projects that involve the development of game levels and prototypes.
Graduates of the ISVGD course can look forward to an exciting career in Britain's fast-moving games industry, but also because of the increasing importance of multimedia and interactivity in the film, television, and communications industries you will find that your skills are in great demand in all of these areas
